The Girls of "GochiUsa" Get a Shinto Makeover for Kanda Matsuri
The Kanda Matsuri – a biennial Shinto religious festival that celebrates the victory of Tokugawa Ieyasu at the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600 and the subsequent unification of Japan under the Tokugawa shogunate – is coming to Tokyo on May 13 – 14, 2017, and the girls of Is This Order a Rabbit? are coming along for the ride.
The Kanda Matsuri involves parades with music, dancing, floats, and the presentation of mikoshi (portable Shinto shrines in which gods are said to travel). As part of the festivities, Cocoa, Chino, and the rest of the cast of Is The Order a Rabbit? are receiving a make-over as Shinto shrine maidens. Current plans for the collaboration include posters which retail for 800 yen ($7.20 US), with additional character goods to be announced in the future.
